The fact that us take great importance in our cuisine, and thus our chocolates are made with our heart and soul using patience to create the perfect chocolate. Srsly, we have a history of makign chocolate since the congo colonial time as well as a chocolate craft ideology as well as a unique way od making chocolate :biggrin:

No! I think as a younger gen we have a different view of the way how Belgium should be seen, I think I would wish for a unified belgium with a decrease in tension between Wallonia and Flamers :biggrin:
